It's quite evident that importations and exportation based in fossil fuels or other type of contaminating energy should be an exception. Federated regions should persist with mostly local resources in my opinion.

Yeah of course that would be great but what about areas that don't have iron or steel for example. People couldn't produce anything or couldn't build houses for example

Well, those are limited resources. People should learn to occupy those material resources which have been previously manufactured, a recycling economy.

Hmm okay good idea. Then we should also concentrate in finding other materials or resources that are not limited and can be used in the same way. Anyways it leads to some big starting problems in my opinion

Well, ecological collapse is a quite bigger problem I think.

Yes of course but you have to acknowledge that most if our products we use on a daily basis happen to be created with some kind of natural resource. Ecological collapse is of course a bigger problem but not producing anything would make you fall behind everyone else and inequality would still exist

Inequality with respect what? Do not forget that our collapse will be global.

Inequality in the sense that regions with those resources will have more technology, goods or products than those in regions without them. Even with mutual help between regions it would have to be a big area for all kind of resources to be shares between them

Well, perhaps if you make the problem more concrete, perhaps localizing the region, we could offer some recommendations. Abstract questions can just release abstract solutions.

For example the northern part of Germany is very very flat and much of the agriculture such as wheat grows there. But they would have no way in getting things like metals. They could sustain themselves with enough food and water of course but in terms of technology they would be worse than west Germany or other regions

Yeah well in anarchism there could be many federated, decentral and liberal communes which could govern themself but still be connected in the great scale

First of no need to get vulgar I am trying to get a simple discussion going.

I don't understand either of your points could you explain please why they don't make sense or aren't anarchism?

Well I just realised that I wanted to say CONfederation. That would make more sense my mistake.

You still haven't answered about "liberal communes doesn't make any fucking sense"
